Hey I know this is going to just shock everyone that I am blogging, now I'm not sure if I'm putting this on the O'Crowley blog or just writing this to the world but we shall see. 

First of all Merry Christmas to everyone.  I find it kind of weird to not be calling up and talking to mom, it was my way of keeping up with what was going on in the family.  I guess that was the reasoning behind this blog, and I will try to do better.

As far as our family we have been really blessed this year and are all doing great.  I am still working two jobs, one marketing for my neighbors restoration company, and the other doing water system sales for a big plumbing and AC company and both have been going good.  Steph is still doing all her crafty c...(stuff) and just has head full of ideas of what she wants to do next on the house. Its a good thing both of my jobs have been going well.

Chelsea and Jake are over in Monterrey Calif. and seem like they are having a great time.  He is in the languages training for the Air Force and is learning Chinese.  We had a bag under the tree this morning when we were opening presents and it had a pregnancy test in it that was positive. I guess we are going to be grandparents, WOW.

Brittni is still working at US Airways and seems to still really like it, I hope she sticks with it just so we can still travel cheap.

Ashlee and Hailey are both doing great in school, Ashlee a Junior and Hailey an 8th grader.  They both got strait A's again this semester and we are still trying to figure out if they are really are kids sometimes because neither of us got grades like that.  They are both doing club volleyball and Ashlee even made the 18's traveling team, so she gets to go to Hawaii and Colorado for tournaments.

Hope everyone is doing great and know that we love and appreciate all of you. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Andy, Steph and girls and Jake

Hello from Germany

Hey guys we are about to  become grandparents over here for the first time!!!!  I know this is old hat for  many of you - but this will be our first!  Lauren is getting bigger and more miserable by the day and really wants this little guy out!  I don't think he will be a little guy though - sorry Lauren.  She is due on the 20th and we leave for the states on the 15th.  I hope she holds him in until we get there : )
This are busy as ever over here, but we are really enjoying being here at Christmas time.  We love the Christmas Markets and are trying to get in as many as we can be for the 15th.  Anything anyone needs?  Let me know now.  Mark is working on the Christmas letter tonight so that should be coming soon.
We have gotten snow three times now and yet there is none on the ground.  Lots of folks are sad about that but I am not one of them.  I love the heat!  The hotter the better and I just survive the winter and wait for Spring.  I don't know how I survived Idaho all those years!
I get to attend our 1st counselors wedding in the Memphis temple when I am there!  He is 61 and has never been married and is completely excited.  I will be with her and Matt will be one of the witnesses! Small world for sure.
Well it is late here and I must be to work very early tomorrow so I will say farewell and pray that I did this thing correct!  Robin let me know if not.
Love you all and hope you are getting to relax and feel the Christmas Spirit in your homes and lives.
Love Heather and Mark
